Science is more than just  cold blooded, rational analysis and laboratory experiment. The laboratory is just  that. It is a place. It is actually quite a strange place,  not part of the real world. It is an artificially created place where influences are controlled, away from  the world. But the world and its dynamic are also (or should be) our laboratory. ‘Scientific’ has come to mean  ‘True’and is now used as equivalent to  ‘Iam right (and you are wrong) ‘. Along with the technological advances, the digital watches and lasers, we have developed a kind of science-induced  blindness that arises out of the belief that we can atomise observational facts  and deal with them as separate entities in a cultural vacuum and then reassemble them to obtain the truth.
